What is ABCJLM?

ABC Jesus Loves Me is a comprehensive, research-based preschool curriculum for ages 1-5 that focuses on academics, development, and the Bible. The five 36-week curricula incorporate learning into the toddler's and preschooler's day instead of controlling it, allowing the child to explore, play, and learn new things.  Our website includes thousands of lesson plans, printables, and supportive ideas to guide the child's learning and help the adult be intentional throughout the day. 

The entire ABCJLM site, ideas, and attachments are free for the teaching of your child in an immediate family, home setting.  Use of any idea or worksheet from this website with a child outside your legal guardianship requires a License.  This includes all churches as well as nonprofit and for-profit businesses, daycares, and preschools.  Lesson plans and workbooks are available to order in book form.
